Corns & Calluses

Corns and calluses are annoying and sometimes painful thickened skin on your feet. They form in places that are under pressure or rubbed by your shoes.

We can remove your painful corns and calluses quickly and painlessly.

A corn is thick and a distinct conical or circular shape. It's usually dry, firm, flesh-coloured and waxy. A callus is a more spread out, flattened area of thick skin.

If you have diabetes or poor circulation in your feet, contact your podiatrist as soon as corns or calluses develop.

You may find it painful to walk if you have corns, even if they are small. The most common locations for corns are:

  • on the sole of your foot, especially on the ball of your foot
  • on the outside of your fifth toe, where the little toe rubs against your shoe, and
  • between your fourth and fifth toes, and these corns can be whitish and messy.
